Li Xiangxi's family grows this Rou Gui varietal in higher elevation above the Tongmu Gorge in the curves where where mist settles between the peaks and protects the tender tea leaves from afternoon sunlight. Growing among wild bamboo, orange trees and flowers, this Rou Gui picks up a complex aroma. The light roast process preserves the natural flavors of the tea and the land.
